crisis in venezuela, because the constitution there says you're supposed to have an election within 30 days. if the winner cannot actually be inaugurated. we'll see what happens there. we'll show you what's going on with venezuelan bonds. they're widely held with a lot of fixed-income portfolios. look at that, nearly 9%. when hugo chavez first got sick, venezuelan bonds rallied dramatically, because people thought, okay, there's now going to be more investment back in the oil infrastructure, that means there will be more likely to pay back the money. in the short term if you look to the right, yields have risen again because in the short term, this could lead to chaos. they have the largest reserves in the western hemisphere when it comes to oil. moving on to north korea. we now have video, google executive chairman, eric schmidt, touring a computer lab in north korea, along with the former governor bill richardson who organized the trip. this is the entrance to the grand people's study house. and you'll see them looking at north korean individuals who happen to be allowed to be on the

with the fiscal cliff, they've heard us with the election and the last debt ceiling. and they heard us with the italian bonds. they're saying, maybe the media is too negative. >> speaking of deals, let's talk about one deal that does not look like it's going to happen. u.p.s. is abandoning the takeover of dutch delivery firm citing resistance from european regulators. u.p.s. had sought to buy them for the european network in business in asia and latin america. not entirely a surprise, i would imagine, since the ecb had sent a number of requirements out. >> but melissa, i think there was a generally held belief this was making good progress. i think the reason you're seeing tnt shares down so sharply because it was something of a surprise. you know, it may trade over there, but the fact ,t is owned largely to -- well, over here, and as you might expect hedge funds have been big players in this. they are getting -- well, they're just getting crushed today, as you see that stock down. it was a debate about creating competition there. there appeared to be the dpd division of lepost, the fr

awfully close. >> thanks. yeah, we did. >> year end was what, 1450? >> we started the year at 1430. post-election we kind of raised the numbers twice towards 1450. >> with that in mind, you see year end going to 1580. >> that's right. >> we're going to have a round-about journey, the middle of the year you think looks treacherous. walk us through that. >> we think the first half's going to be pretty tricky. you know, we can see the u.s. economy strengthening, china improving and investors under way. so we think it's proper for the market to be rallying towards 1500. but i think we're going to get a speed bump that takes us down to 1350-ish, which means we're down year-to-date, before we see the market really see the second half strengthening and getting us to 1580. >> tom, do you thich the first part of the year will be tricky because of what is happening in washington is this let's say we had, you know, reached a grand par gain of some sorts at the end of last year. would you say it's also tricky still? >> yeah. i think because, you know, i mean, washington's definitely one part of that calculus

. it's going to include the election. it's going to include the cliff. so there are going to be a flurry of outliers out there. >> i do like that the ceo has never blamed politics for the miss. it's always been the commodity occurrences. those are the question marks. you see iron come up in price, copper get strong. we've not seen aluminum get strong. aerospace a little bit stronger, construction a little bit stronger. remember, they did win the back of the ipad. that is the alcoa back there. they've got new bottles for coca-cola, but they make aluminum. and aluminum is in glut. exciting as the story should be, people get let down. look, i thought -- i talked about monsanto. i was wrong. that didn't come in. i do believe you get a moment to buy alcoa. it will only be a matter of time. they close factories, smelters in italy, and in spain. can you imagine the political pressure that klaus was under not to close those but he took the tough medicine. one day it will matter, that huge plant in the middle east will matter. alcoa, right now it can wait. >> alcoa can wait. >> the
